I had a disturbing exchange with a high school-aged person today that prompted this…
Beer, wine, mead, and cider are fermented beverages.
Mead is made from honey.
Cider is made from apples.
Beer is made from grains.
Beer tastes like…
I like this. Also, the part where they were talking about Long Islands? All true. But what they didn’t tell you is that they are delicious
WONDERFUL BREAK-DOWN and I just learned a lot. Agreed with the list of stuff they say not to drink XD
But excuse me, wine is great (well, white wine is, anyway).
Also, mead is DIVINE. Just saying. Someone get me some for my next birthday (or just anytime before that would be cool, too).
Wine is fabulous. No but actually. If you think it tastes bad, you’re probably either a) drinking a shitty wine or b) drinking a really really heavy red. Or I suppose c) have no taste.
Also, Long Island Iced Teas are fucking delicious. There’s no reason not to drink them as long as you understand how much alcohol is in them and how your body can handle it.
Yup, strangely offended by the comment about pretending wine tastes good. It does! In any case, this is VERY useful information! I can think of several people who would benefit from this. And I learned a little bit too!
i'd check out the day packs that rei has to offer. osprey have some pretty awesome smaller bags with a good amount of ventilation so your back doesn't get all hot and sweaty. probably just big enough for a slr type of camera
Thanks! I’ll go to Santa Fe tomorrow for a movie, so I’ll check out REI while I’m there!
My best friend, Andrea, and I are looking for a bag for us to take into the Disneyland Parks with us, something along the lines of the kind Swiss Gear makes. However, we both have larger cameras, which is posing a problem. Anyone have any good recommendations for a nice bag we can conveniently carry these and other items around in the park for a couple days?
Yes! Please help! I want a backpack- nothing too lopsided so it doesn’t mess up my back too much.
Interviewer:Give us your best tip for overcoming depression.
Stephen Fry:To regard it as being like the weather. It's not your responsibility that it's raining, but it is real when it rains, and the fact that it's raining does not mean that the rain is never going to stop. The only thing to do is to believe that, one day, it won't be raining and accept it so you can find a mental umbrella to shield yourself from the worst. The sun will eventually come up.
I have told a few people this, but now I am ready to go public with it.
Most of Tumblr won’t be phased by this, but I am announcing this to the casual passers-by who got this link from my Facebook.
I like smoking.
Bear with me; I have a decent, if not good, reason.
I have always been categorically against cigarettes. I have always been upset by people smoking around me, by the idea that smoking wasn’t more costly, and that it causes cancer. My father was a smoker, and he died as a result of cancer. The particular type of cancer wasn’t necessarily caused by smoking, but I always acted on the assumption that there could have been some correlation.
Last summer in Prague, I got a lot more used to the smell of cigarette smoke, and for the first time (and many after that), I shared cigarettes with travel companions.
I came back to the U.S. telling myself that I would not smoke, though I sort of missed it. I think I come by it honestly, being the child and descendant of smokers. My mother was hypnotized a month into her pregnancy with me to stop smoking— but she’ll be the first to tell you the smell is enticing to her now.
I do not smoke more than one per week. The reason I took it back up after months of not smoking is that research shows that ulcerative colitis, my particular malady, is one of few whose overall effect is dampened by exposure to tobacco. I can’t explain why, and it seems that researchers can’t either. But I can tell you with much confidence that the day after I have my weekly cigarette, my bowels move like a dream. Perhaps too much information… but now you know. Once a week, I get a kick from having a cigarette.
